Horiuchi's special memory as an audience member provided his own choreographic inspiration for R&J:
"I was 16 years old when I first saw Rudolf Nureyev's production of Romeo and Juliet at Metropolitan Opera House
in New York. Rudy danced the role of Romeo, Carla Fracci, the principal ballerina of La Scala Ballet, danced Juliet, and the Royal Ballet's legendary ballerina Margot Fonteyn was Lady Capulet. Not only was I moved by their incredible dancing, I was also impressed with Rudy's choreography - there was drama, romance and tragedy. He told every detail through such clear story telling technique and his wonderful staging skill."
